For more than twenty years Mr. J.
15. Massey, of 3322 Clinton St.", Minneapolis, Minn., was tortured hy sciatica, the pain and suffering which
lie endured during this time is beyond compiehension. Nothing gave
liini any permanent relief until he used Chamberlain's Pain Balm. One
application of that, liniment relieved
(he pain and made- sleep and rest possible, and less (han one bottle has
effected a permanent cure. If troubled, with sciatica or rheumatism,
why not try a 25-ccnfc. bottle of Uie
Pain Balm and see for yourself how
q'uickly it relieves pain. For sale by
